You can remove a favorite by clicking on “my favorite” button, which will then give the option to remove the favorite.

To remove messages, click on the box to the right of the message, then scroll down to the bottom and click the delete button

The only way i know is to go to the specific Project’s page and you can click on My Favorites Button and then click on Remove from Favorites. If you are talking about PM, then you go to the message page and check the box to the right of the message then click on Delete below the checked boxes. Hope I explained that well enough.

If I didn’t ask dumb questions I wouldn’t be asking any.

I’m so glad you’re aboard here, Doc. I can now enjoy the thought that there might be an LJ who knows even less about computers than I do. Go ahead and ask your “dumb” questions. Maybe I’ll learn a few things as a result.

Thank you so much, I have been wondering about that ever since I joined LJ and I am computer literate. I have played around with them since the 80’s.

Don’t feel bad, removing favorites was NOT intuitive or easy to find, Because I needed to know too, I do not consider it a dumb question.
